Overview

This important national conference provides an essential update for current and aspiring non medical and pharmacist prescribers on prescribing for older adults. Through national updates and extended interactive practical case studies delegates will hear how to develop and maintain prescribing competence, and how to develop effectiveness in post qualification practice.

The conference will discuss the role of the September 2021 Updated Prescribing Competency Framework in supporting non-medical prescribing in older adults. The conference will include case studies on managing pain in the older person, improving medicines optimisation, prescribing in falls prevention, frail older people, and delirium, and developing the role of the NMP in care homes.

The conference will include an extended focus on ensuring patient safety and the Nurse Prescribers role with regard to medication management, polypharmacy and de-prescribing following the 2021 GIRFT recommendations.
